Physical Requirements/Working Conditions

We occasionally deliver 40 lbs. boxes of paper to various departments around campus. Some are in other buildings. This delivery requires lifting the boxes onto a dolly or two wheeler. Most deliveries can be made when two students are available, so the delivery is made easier by two students working together.

Most students will print self-serve and will not require assistance. However, there will be times when students will need assistance with self-serve.

Color printing is not self serve and requires either Printing staff or student workers to send jobs to the large color printer for the customer. Learning this process will be necessary.

Knowledge, Skills, Abilities, and Work Characteristics

The primary characteristic needed with our student workers is to be willing to be at work at the time agreed upon at the beginning of the semester.

Students who are willing to learn the Printing environment and apply that knowledge throughout the semester are most able to help not only the department, but also their fellow students who will need printing, binding, and help with other misc. projects.

We like to provide a positive working environment for students, faculty and staff who need our services. Student workers who also share this desire will fit in our working environment.
